Overlooking Ryde Esplanade and Harbour with views across the Solent, this majestic building is claimed to have been commissioned by Henry VIII to defend the Spithead, Southampton Water and the Solent from the invasion by the Spanish Armada during his daughter's reign.
During World War I the building was used as a wartime hospital and during World War II it was an Army HQ.
Rumours say there is a friendly spirit, although playful moving of objects and some sightings is all we can offer with any certainty.
Offering a delicious a la carte menu as well as an extensive wine list, this delightful candle-lit experience can only be topped by the stunning sea views.
Serving both pre and after dinner drinks as well as less formal dining.
Address: Ryde Castle, Esplanade, Ryde Isle of Wight, PO33 1JA
